Ordr IoT Discovery Spotlight Program to Uncover Shadow IoT

By

Ordr, an enterprise IoT security company, recently announced the availability of its new IoT Discovery Spotlight Program that is designed to uncover shadow IoT devices and their corresponding risks. The company said that qualified users get a kit including a cloud-managed, zero-touch provisioning sensor, and a limited-duration license to the new Ordr Core software. For enterprises that need to maintain continuous, high-fidelity visibility across the entire network, the subscription reportedly delivers foundational device discovery, classification, behavior analysis, and risk profiling functionality.

“Shadow IoT is a growing challenge for enterprises in every industry. Organizations have no idea what devices are lurking on their networks, and as IoT adoption accelerates, the problem is only going to get worse. You can’t secure what you can’t see, but Ordr’s IoT Discovery program shows you your risk so you can make informed decisions about device security and management,” said Jason Viera, CTO, Carousel Industries.

In the release, Ordr said the kit is designed for speed and will get organizations up and running within minutes. The way it works is to send the data from the IoT sensor to the Ordr Cloud dashboard to drive security decisions and improve operational performance. The service is available to enterprises for a 30-day trial period that can then be upgraded to a paid deployment. The IoT Discovery Spotlight program is available through Ordr channel partners: Carousel Industries, Logicalis, GuidePoint Security, Cadre, Connection, Novacoast, and Teneo.

“For healthcare organizations, the ability to obtain comprehensive visibility into what’s on their network is critical not only for asset inventory, but overall patient safety as well. They need an accurate inventory of devices in the network, to track those that have been recalled, have vulnerabilities or are running aging or outdated operating systems. Ordr’s IoT Discovery Program streamlines this process,” said Tom Stafford, Healthcare CO, CDW Healthcare.

“IoT management and security has traditionally been difficult without a comprehensive approach to finding, classifying, and securing those devices,” said Greg Murphy, CEO, Ordr. “With our IoT Discovery program, new software packaging, and zero touch capabilities, every enterprise can inventory all of the devices on their network to understand granular details such as make, model, operating system, and vulnerabilities, as well as profile exactly how devices are behaving.”
